  • Description

    The state of Jharkhand was till recently a part of the bigger state of Bihar. The state itself is known as the Industrial state of India as it has many industries, especially dealing with steel, iron and coal. After being separated from the state of Bihar, Ranchi became the capital of the state of Jharkhand. <br />Basically the area was tribal area and was ruled by various tribes, till the Magadh Empire took over. It also came under the Mughal rule for some time in the medieval era and later the British took over. The whole of the Chota Nagpur plateau was handed over to the Governor of Patna in the 18th century and thus became a part of the vast state of Bihar. <br />Ranchi is surrounded by thick jungles, thus making it a good habitat for the tribes those, which came and settled here from the neighbouring states of either Orissa or the state of Chhattisgarh. Today it is known as the city of waterfalls as there are many picturesque waterfalls in the area.<br />The best among them are the Hundru, Jonha and Dassam falls. Other interesting sites in Ranchi are the temples dedicated to Shiva and the replica of the Jaggannath Puri temple of Puri in Orissa.
